we depended upon them and i call mohammed at all times of the day and before it was ed lee and when ed lee was out here personally cleaning the streets earlier in the morning i was a community orientationer and we used to do our own clean up of the neighborhood with the high school students and ed lee then department head used to come to chinatown to inclusive deliver the dust bags and stuff. it's really great to welcome you all out here. i want to say it's important we all participate in making our city as beautiful as possible whether it's the spreadsheets
students at the carr michael the only school that serves our children through 8th grade. i think it's also important we're not all out here once a year. which when is so amazing if you're regularly out here cleaning the city this isn't just one day our regulating helping to clean our city and i want to say thank you. so let's get out there and clean our neighborhoods >> all right. one more speaker when the mayor launched the giant sweep program he didn't want it to just be dwp or the carr mistake students one
area we need to do a lot of work on is the transit system particularly our buses. there are people who get on the buzz sz they trash our buses and tag them. so the giant sweep has reached $0.84 it out to the transportation department. please welcome mr. reiskin >> as the other former public works director i thank you for being here. particularly the young people. it was nine hundred years ago that the people of san francisco figured that public transportation was very important we were the first transit foundation in the united
states but as a puny transit system once that was called the people's railway it's really part of the public realm like our public buildings and our trains and our buzz stops we should think of them in the same way pare the leaders here have about a great partner but this gentleman was saying can you incidental someone walking into city hall and starting to puck put a sticker on the doors we won't tolerate that we should have the same obsolesce for our trains and other assets. as the mayor said we want everything to look good and save and ordinarily. but the mayor and i had an
opportunity probably a year ago now to invest the square and i was impressed besides you having beer in the refrigerator it's a time and this may have changed but jack was telling us something like 95 percent of the square people lives in the city whether you're still at 95 or not a lot of you are riding our bikes in the city and we would like to take some of the million dollars that we're spending that dwp is spending to try to clean up our system we'd rather direct that money to buying now a buses and believe new bike lanes. you kids all live in the city
it's about taking pride in the city. i could say we're spending million dollars dollars cleaning up after other folks but the muni of the city is exactly what is happening today you coming out and being willing to compete see who can get the buses clean. and mohammed thank you for inviting muni and the sfmta into the giant sweep. we welcome the square we're right across the street from you and glad to have you in the neighborhood and glad to have the bicycle safety around carr michael school at the great urging of supervisor kim.
i look forward to seeing the shiny new buses arrest all right. are we ready to go to work. yeah. >> while you're out there working please number one priority work safely. if you see items that you are doufbl of talk to a supervisor. most of them will be around in a vest. places, dates, and times please don't touch things our doufbl which. it's a little bit hot today so drink a little bit of water and a at the end of the day we'll all come back and enjoy the great work payroll thank you union square and everyone and let's have
